JOHN HENRY BYRD (1805/6-1884)

Noted as Arkansas' most prolific antebellum artist, John Henry Byrd is best known for the restrained romantic portraits he painted around the state for twenty years. Nicknamed the 'Sully of Arkansas', Byrd in the 19th century painted many of that state's leading families who lived in areas such as Little Rock, Batesville, Camden, Pine Bluff, Hot Springs, and El Dorado. During his career he also lived in New Orleans, Louisiana, and in Huntsville, Alabama.
